    I tried to find this plant online but couldn't. It grows in my pond in Washington state. I'm not sure of the height it can grow to, but it reaches the surface from at least 3' deep.

    Anyone have any ideas on what this might be?

    Hello CWB. Sorry, not a clue as to what the plant is called. Hopefully someone will help you ID it today.

    It doesn't look like any of them. There is duckweed in the pond, but this stuff has really taken over in the last couple years. It sort of looks like an Elodea. It's not a floating plant. Reaches at least 3 feet tall and it has an arrangement of 2 leaves opposite each other facing N/S, than the next two are facing E/W and so on.
